History : The history, genealogy, beliefs and way of life of the Turkoman steppe peoples are all of great importance to their woven art.Turkoman weavings, with their distinctive red-brown palette, repeating rows of geometric 'gul'ornamentation, extremely fine major and minor borders, high knot count and strong glossy wool represent a highly complex and historically continuous culture.The study of Turkoman weavings is extensive and important especially as the various different tribes reside within a large area including  Iran Turkmeni,stan,  Uzbekistan and Afghanistan.
